Greyhound George & Andy Grünert
Greyhound George and Andy Grünert are a German acoustic duo whose music ranges from Delta country blues to modern Chicago style and soul. Their performing style has a back porch intimacy that draws you in and a driving energy that makes you want to dance all night and hope the sun never rises. Greyhound’s mastery of the Delta slide guitar is matched by his delicate Piedmont picking. Andy's harmonica licks give power to George’s Chicago style songs, while he mellows out with his acoustic playing, to accentuate the authentic old-time feel of Greyhound's slide guitar work. Greyhound’s original songs, from autobiographical to bitingly topical, show that the future of blues is secure.
George was nominated for the German Blues Award in 2013, 2014,2015 and as a duo they were nominated in 2016 and 2017 and were the best solo/duo act at the German Blues Challenge 2015.
In 2016 the duo took part in the "International Blues Challenge" in Memphis and was nominated for the German Blues Award as the the best German duo.
